Arvada Auto X instructor, Bryce Segovia challenges firefighters with this multi-car pile-up extrication scenario at Arvada Auto X 2023 featuring Next Level Extrication in Arvada, CO.
My name’s Bryce. I’m with Arvada fire. I’ve been with 16 years. I’m on Truck 54 right now.
So this, this one we created three years ago. Brand new to Auto X, but it’s really great.
Obviously you can see it’s not a very typical accident we go on and not very ideal, but, the point of this, station is to kind of get you guys thinking, use a lot of, different techniques you’re gonna be using, kind of thinking outside the box in a lot of these times.
But, the biggest part is trusting your equipment.
You guys are gonna be putting some stabilization.
You’re basically gonna suspend this vehicle in the air while we’re taking the doors and the B post off this middle or the bottom vehicle, and you’re gonna see that nothing’s gonna move.
You guys are gonna be able to do it freely.
Safely and at the end of it, you guys are gonna be pretty impressed with what these tools are capable of doing. Basically, gonna try to open this up, maximizing the space above and below.
There was no adjustments needed. We have basically kept this at exact same place and taken a lot of integrity out of this bottom vehicle. You could see we could freely go in and out of this vehicle with whatever we need to do with patients. Right.
